Minnesota Volunteer Firefighter Hospitalized After Injury
GIBBON, Minn. (AP) - A volunteer firefighter from south-central Minnesota is hospitalized after he was injured at a fire earlier this week.
Forty-year-old Ryan Sabo has been a Gibbon volunteer firefighter for nine years. He was hurt Monday while helping fight the fire that destroyed the Weistress Welding building in Fairfax.
Sabo was helping move a hose from one side of the building to the other when a door fell on him. It took six people to lift the steel door off.
Sabo is at North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale. His injuries include a shattered thigh bone and hip and a compressed spine. Doctors are monitoring his kidney for bruising.
Sabo has since been moved out of intensive care to the trauma room.
